most word documents recognize you are writing an e-mail address when you put an at (@) sign, or a web address when they see an 'http://' or a '.com' ... so they format what you typed out into the website link that you intended..

forum posts like this aren't as advnaced so you have to use something called HTML Tags ... to make something a 'link' like i just wrote previously, you have to use the a href= tag ... put a < in front of the a href= then put a quote, then the address the link is to point to, and then an end quote mark, then a > then the text of what the link will say (it can be the same as the website, just type it out again) and then a 'closing' tag < /a > (withought the spaces). so just do somethign like this but delete the spaces between the less than sign and the text...

< a href="http://www.archive.org/audio" >The Live Music Archive Rocks< /a >

The Live Music Archive Rocks

The only difference between #1 and #2 is that for number two i deleted the spaces between the < and the a, the > and the ", and the two spaces on the end tag. that's it!

cool? test it out and just edit your post till you get it right. HTML is fun!

thanks a millon Tyler, I am new at the whole computer thing and sometimes get frustrated at myself for not just knowing what to do all the time. But I think with the help you have given this can be figured out now. Cheers and peace
